Obituary of Susan Handville

Susan Marie Handville, 66, of Pleasantville, NY died Tuesday, May 7th, 2024, at Danbury Hospital, after a courageous battle with cancer.  She was surrounded by loved ones who will continue to honor her legacy. Sue was born on June 8th, 1957, in Buffalo, NY to the late John and Pauline Haaga.


Susan graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science from Syracuse University, School of Nursing and received her Master of Science in Nursing Administration and Clinical Practice from Pace University’s Leinhard School of Nursing.


Susan worked as a Nurse Manager & Patient Advocate for many years. She knew she wanted to pursue a career in healthcare at a young age and always took such pride in her work. Sue loved all of her colleagues dearly at Silver Hill Hospital, St. Vincent’s Hospital, and most recently Four Winds Hospital.


The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Susan — she loved going for nature walks, spending time with her kids, and getting lost in a good book. Her laugh and quick wit was contagious to everyone she met.


Susan is the loving Mother of Kelin and Claire, and the adored partner of Brian Urso. She is the beloved sister of Diane Haaga, Patricia (Haaga) Perlstein, and Robert Haaga. She also is survived by several nieces and nephews.


Friends and family may call at Clark Associates Funeral Home, 4 Woods Bridge Rd., Katonah, NY on Saturday, June 1st from 3-5pm for a service honoring Susan’s life, with a backyard reception to follow at 75 Lakeside Dr, Katonah, NY 10536.


Memorial contributions may be made to St. Jude’s Hospital  and Memorial Sloan Kettering, in Sue’s honor.
